In the latest installment of this series, there is a a segment on the USS Missouri, and what she would look like after there was no one left on earth. It also shows what the ship would look like after so many years, and that eventually it would sink into the deep mud of Pearl Harbor, to become a reef. It uses the USS Arizona as an example , but also says due to the thickness of its armor belt of more than 17 inches, it would take 20,000 years for it to completely disintegrate, according to their caculations.

They use further proof of how sea life would inhabit the ship by showing the clip of the Oriskany from the time the charges go off, to her last bit of port side forward before she slides below the waves. It then shows how sea life has taken over our old home, and her new name of; 'The Great Carrier Reef,' and how successful it has become. Oriskany name is mentioned in the piece, and the year the ship was sunk.
